Capture in-field weather information for on the go decision making. Accurate information is critical when making decisions surrounding chemical application. Why not use weather information that is specific to the operator and area being covered? John Deere Mobile Weather displays five critical values needed for when determining the effectiveness of chemical application.
- Wind speed (true)
- Wind direction
- Delta T
- Relative humidity
True wind speed is wind experienced by a stationary object. Apparent wind speed is the total wind experienced without compensation for machine speed and direction.
John Deere Mobile Weather utilizes a third-party weather sensor that connects to the John Deere Application Controller 1120. Weather data is collected and distributed to the GreenStar™ 3 (GS3) 2630 Display for viewing and documentation. John Deere Mobile Weather activation is required to utilize the Application Controller 1120 in order to monitor weather information and is included with the purchase of the product.
Producers running a GS3 2630 are capable of documenting weather data, all other compatible GreenStar 2 (GS2) Displays will only be able to display the weather data without the ability to record. Once the weather information is collected in the GS3 2630, it can then be transferred to Apex™ software system for further analysis and record keeping. Apex has the ability to map air temperature, wind speed, and Delta T, while wind direction and humidity is available to be seen within the summary information.
